JACQ returns to the Spotlight Mix
JACQ’s love affair with house music is a longstanding one, spanning several decades and withstanding the test that comes with the twists and turns in the road of musical evolution. The Liverpool-born DJ/Producer has known from a young age that the music was destined to play a major role in his life. He grew up during a time where mixing records was still a dark art, and masters of the craft were reluctant to shed even the slightest bit of knowledge. In a way, that mentality helped to separate the cream from the crop. Those that really invested their time and passion eventually honed an impressive level of skill and JACQ was definitely one of the lucky few in that sense.
Realising that the next logical stage in his advancement would be to get in the studio and start learning to make his own music, JACQ embarked on a vigorous quest for knowledge and a new ability. Taking to the confines of studio space with artists like Rudosa, Dave Parkinson and Tuff London, JACQ has honed his craft and gained support from the internationally revered Toolroom Academy as a result. His aggressive tuition efforts supported heavily by the knowledge of D. Ramirez and Pete Griffiths have led to his recent work being supported by artists at the level of Harry Romero, amongst others.
His latest single ‘Here In My Heart’ has just dropped on Toolroom Trax. It is that signature Trax sound with bundles of dance floor energy, tough, driving drums and that catchy synth-led bass line. Mark Knight has been hammering this in his recent sets and we have it on good authority that it ‘goes OFF!’ Expect to hear more of Jacq in 2020 as he develops his sound after this excellent debut release! Out now: Toolroom.lnk.to/InMyHeartTS
He begins a brand new residency for Liverpool’s newest event ‘In The Box’ on 29th November 2019 (grab tickets here) which is set to have some big plans leading to some very interesting opportunities for his in 2020.
